A lush style, showing notes of nectarine, poached apple and lemon curd, with a backbone of vibrant acidity. Lovely now, but pretty intense and could use some time to integrate in order to show its best. Mineral, fruit and floral elements are all present, leading to a long finish marked by Asian spice accents. Best from 2022 through 2037.
The 2018 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese is intense and clear on the deep, fragrant, stony-mineral nose. Dense and structured on the palate, with crystalline acidity and a linear-mineral, salty-piquant character, this is an elegant, highly precise and stimulating yet still very young Spätlese that will benefit from bottle aging. Tight, compact and very promising! 9% alcohol. Tasted from AP 1219 in May 2019. (SR)
The 2018 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese* from Weingut Selbach-Oster is another very charming example of the vintage. Johannes Selbach notes that this includes a touch of botrytis and some beautiful golden berries in it this year. It delivers a fine bouquet of mango, white cherry, pear, apple blossoms, bee pollen, a hint of violets and a nice bass note of slate. On the palate the wine is medium-full, focused and zesty, with good acids, blossoming complexity and lovely length and grip on the very well-balanced finish. Good juice. (Drink between 2023-2060)
This is packed with peach and passion fruit flavors, given zip through a spritz of lime. Right now, the details are obscured by the wine’s sweetness, but it has the stuffing to age well.
